Summer Corn Salad

 I always  used to see fresh corn and cucumber at  the road side  sellers during  late summers  and rainy seasons.  We also used to see them selling fresh mint and lime juice, sugar cane juice and Fresh coconut water.  These used to keep our body cool and the hot summers. Cucumber contain lot of water in it where as  mint is  a medicinal herb  which is used in many medicines to treat stomach pain and chest pain. Sweet corn increases levels of ferulic acid  which has anti cancer properties.

For day 2, week 4 of BM 62 and here with this delicious and simple summer salad  under the theme " Salads". I named this Summer salad because cucumbers  and mint  in this dish keeps your body cold during the warm and hot summer days. Here goes the healthy and colorful Corn Salad.....




Ingredients:


Sweet corn kernels 1 cup
Cherry tomatoes 10
Cucumber 1 medium sized
Chopped cilantro 3 spoons
Chopped mint leaves 2 spoons
Red bell pepper chopped 1/4 cup
Scallions / green onion chopped 3 spoons
Lime  / lemon juice  4 spoons
Salt to taste
Crushed black pepper 1 spoon


Preparation:


I have used the frozen corn kernels here.
Steam or boil the sweet corn kernels and set aside to cool down.
Let it cool down completely drain  water  if any then  start the preparation.
Take the corn kernels in a mixing bowl, add chopped bell pepper, cucumber, scallions, cherry tomatoes, cilantro and mint leaves.



Give it a toss and add black  pepper and salt  to taste.
Squeeze in lime juice and mix well.
Pop it in  refrigerator for about 1 hour before serving.
